Everi Holdings has enlisted in a US Army initiative intended to support veterans as they seek employment.
The Las Vegas-based provider will enter the US Army’s Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) programme, a cross-sector scheme designed to offer soldiers job opportunities after their term of service is up.
PaYS works with various public and private-sector organisations, such as Everi, to guarantee veterans an interview, and the possibility of employment.
The programme, as described on the PaYS website, “is part of the Army’s effort to partner with America’s business community and reconnect America with its Army.”
By participating in the programme, Everi will have the opportunity to mentor soldiers and newly commissioned officers as they transition to private employment.
Everi veterans and executives joined US Army representatives in a ceremony marking the company’s enrolment in the PaYS programme.
“Everi is proud to celebrate this new initiative with the US Army. It allows us to identify and connect with a talented pool of individuals with discipline, focus and a strong work ethic cultivated while in service,” said Randy Taylor, Everi President and Chief Operating Officer.
“As a company that has a strong focus in the technology industry, with job availability across our games and fintech business segments, we are eager to engage with veterans who possess a variety of skillsets.
“This is a win-win engagement for us both; we couldn’t be more proud to work with the US Army and those who have served our country.”
This comes after Everi Holdings reported a record-breaking $660.4m in revenue for 2021.
